communications strategies for policy change
Global population and reproductive health issues have been a cornerstone of CCMC’s work for more than two decades. Collaborators have included UNFPA (the United Nations Population Fund), other U.N. agencies, academic researchers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), family planning providers, economists, environmentalists, women’s rights activists and religious groups worldwide. We have partnered in many multi-year media and advocacy campaigns to help build a new consensus among international policymakers and opinion leaders.
Global Population and Reproductive Health Global population and reproductive health issues have been a cornerstone of CCMC’s work for more than two decades. Working with the United Nations, nonprofits, the academic community and others, our goals include increased financial commitments to global reproductive health programs, and deepened public support for those programs resulting from informed policy debates generated through effective, coordinated strategic communications.
Agent Orange in Vietnam Information Initiative Agent Orange used in the war in Vietnam contained a highly toxic form of dioxin, a now-banned chemical that has been linked to cancers, miscarriages, birth defects and other serious health problems. Working in partnership with the Ford Foundation and other NGOs, CCMC is coordinating a strategic initiative that will challenge policymakers and other targeted audiences to provide the resources needed to improve the lives of Vietnamese living with dioxin-related health problems and eliminate dioxin hot spots in Vietnam.
The PUSH Journal www.PUSHJournal.org Each weekday, the Periodic Updates on Sexual and Reproductive Health (PUSH) Journal emails full-text articles from LexisNexis on global population, reproductive health and related issues from more than 32,000 news outlets around the world. For many of the journalists, who tailor their new feeds based on their topic and geographic preferences when they subscribe to PUSH, both access speed and duration are limited. Sending full-text news in this way broadens the editorial universe and enhances their knowledge and perspective. PUSH adds no text or commentary.
